Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Tue Dec 4, 2012, 11:19 AM

wtf

after perusing a few of the threads on misc. subjects. i'm a little appalled by the number of alerts and negative jury decisions. i was initially attracted to this site because i was hoping for a place to read and discuss matters of the world with other free thinkers without the bias and censorship common to many other venues. i'm seeing that prejudices are not just in the realm of the conservative. i'm guess i'm have to redefine what i call a "progressive" if some of the posters call themselves "progressive"

1. I will die for your right to speak your opinion(pecially on a political discussion board)

 

I will die for your right to speak what you have to say and listen
and of course respond opposite if you give an opposing point of view
or positive if your view is similiar to mine

As a liberal, I am a dreamer
and do dream that others would feel the same about me

2. Alerted..........LOL!!!

Let's see if it gets a negative jury decision



on edit: IT STAYS!!

At Tue Dec 4, 2012, 11:27 AM you sent an alert on the following post:

wtf
http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021925414

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)

YOUR COMMENTS:

Doing this for the irony.....I will post the results on this thread (if it stays up......lol)

JURY RESULTS

A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Tue Dec 4, 2012, 11:37 AM, and voted 1-5 to LEAVE IT ALONE.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: "The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." Lord Acton
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Could be alerted on as a SOP violation and have the hosts deal with it. Other then that, it's fine IMO. Kaleva
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Out of the goodness of my liberal bleeding heart, I will allow this thread to stand.
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT and said: Get a hobby. Hiding it just because it reeks of disingenuous posturing.

Thank you.

12. of course you didn't

having done so would have shown a sense of humanity, that should be inherent in a progressive, at least imo. any one can pick a fight.

13. all your concern for humanity too. Oozing from every pore I see. Sure anyone can pick a fight.

Are you trying to start one or just exuding further concern.

7. If there was no moderation

then it wouldn't be DemocraticUnderground.

It would be FreeForAllUnderground. Now that would be interesting, but not what I'm looking for, hence why I'm here.

10. There's been a bit of a meltdown here for the past week or so. Inspired by a troll, methinks.

The admins were VERY slow on the draw in this matter, and, to my mind, still haven't really put out the fire.

14. what is it you want to say????

You are complaining that minds are not free thinking in this forum, but what other forums are you comparing DU to?? And I am quite sure if you are saying something of value we would give it a listen. but if you are here to justify a republican position with no credible value you will get your ass tore out the frame
